We were all young once, but how have the dreams and realities of our adolescence changed over the generations? Are Teenage Dreams So Hard to Beat?

In the age of the internet and Generation Z we will consider the contrasts of adolescence past and present as comparatively tame and nostalgic teenage magazines will be exhibited next to the never-ending click bate of internet culture. Our teenage dreams will be suspended as the exhibition investigates our prolonged adolescence and why ‘teenage’ no longer just refers to the period between the ages of 12 and 20. 

Don't miss the exhibition launch on Thursday 1 March in Market Street, Edinburgh! Refreshments will be provided in the City Art Centre, Market Street from 5pm - 7.30pm and everyone is welcome.

The Travelling Gallery's Spring 2018 exhibition will tour Scotland from 6 March and include work by contemporary artists Arpita ShahAlice Theobold and Holly White alongside archive material from our very own Museum of Childhood  Find out where the team will be by visiting Travelling Gallery.
